Garrett Lund
Guide: Mount Rainier

Garrett's love for the outdoors began at an early age when his parents introduced him to the sports of mountain biking and skiing. Growing up on Bainbridge Island the Cascade and Olympics were always in his backyard. Once moving to Colorado for college his love for climbing and the outdoors continued to grow. While in college he had the opportunity to ski and climb in the Alaskan Range, the Selkirk Mountains in British Columbia and various spots around Colorado. After graduating from Colorado College, Garrett moved to Telluride where he spends the winter skiing and climbing. This will be Garrett's third season with Alpine Ascents and primarily works on Mt. Rainier and in the North Cascades.
